Sports Brief: Golf

Despite a strong start at the Ohio Wesleyan University Strimer Memorial Invitational, a disappointing second round doomed the Lords golf team over the two-day match that began April 5. The Lords finished in seventh place in a field of 15.

Shots bounced the Lords’ way during the first round and they tallied a team score of 306 — good enough for a fifth place tie at the day’s conclusion. Jake Fait ’16 led the Lords with a score of 73.

When the second round started, almost all of the Lords’ individual scores increased, except for Zander Nethercutt ’16, who improved his first day 81 down to a 77. As a team the Lords shot 309 for a combined score of 615, dropping them to seventh place.

The Lords shot 14 strokes better than the previous event, and Head Coach Grant Wallace said that though some of the “rust is coming off,” there is still much improvement to be made.

“The main thing is being able to play outside consistently,” Wallace said. “[Playing inside] doesn’t always mimic what we face out there.”

Next weekend the Lords will head to Granville for Denison University’s Ted Barclay Spring Invitational.
